  • What a pathetic joke of a story. I can remember fishing back in the 1970's before the Magnussen Stevens act. There were fleets of foreign boats off our coasts. When populations fell they would target something else or move on. Just as we did. Simple self regulating system. Perfect? No.

    But given a choice of what we had then to what we have now with big government strangling everyone I'll take my chances with the foreign fleets.

    This whole catch share system is a scam. Designed to fail as it has everywhere else it has been implemented. Please see below. It's detailed and long but it will show the truth instead of this green koolaid whitewash.
